NEW HARMONY — A woman driving northbound on Interstate 15 near mile marker 44 lost control of her vehicle Friday morning and slid off the road.
Just after 9 a.m. a woman driving a 1995 blue Mitsubishi Eclipse, along with a male passenger, was headed north on I-15. Near mile marker 44, the woman lost control and the car spun left into the cable barrier, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Nathan Clark said.
After the car struck the cable barrier, it slid into several posts, and then bounced off a post and slid across the road to the right side where it came to rest facing south on the grassy shoulder.
Iron County Sheriff’s Office deputies, UHP, and Iron County Ambulance responded to the scene.
The car’s airbags deployed, and the woman suffered minor lacerations to the face. She also said her chest hurt from the seat belt, Clark said. The passenger also suffered lacerations to the face. Both the driver and the passenger were wearing seat belts.
The driver’s loss of control could have resulted from wet roads or ice, Clark said.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by responders on scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.
